A Pacifica man was injured Saturday when he crashed his motorcycle while allegedly trying to evade Monterey County sheriff’s deputies. Ryan Doleschal, 30, was riding a Harley Davidson on Salinas Road near the community of Pajaro when deputies said they saw him doing wheelies at about 8 p.m. When deputies caught up to Doleschal at Salinas Road and Railroad Avenue, he allegedly refused to pull over and drove through a stoplight reaching 100 mph on a surface street, the sheriff’s office said.

As the suspect reached a bridge between Watsonville and Pajaro, his motorcycle clipped the rear of an SUV and he lost control of the bike. The motorcycle struck the curb and Doleschal was ejected, sliding about 100 feet before hitting a guardrail. He was taken to Watsonville Community Hospital with a possible broken clavicle and abrasions, according to the sheriff’s office. No one else was injured. The sheriff’s office said Doleschal will be arrested for felony evading an officer and misdemeanor reckless driving when he is released from the hospital.
